Numbers Democrats Don’t Want You To See

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/20

There are a lot of numbers Democrats don’t want you to see, and many of those numbers are poll numbers on various Democrat pet issues. Because those numbers show the Democrats are decidedly in the minority. But the Democrats don’t want the people to be aware of the fact they are actually in the majority and not, after all, “extremists” or “far-right” or any other personal attack the Democrats use from day to day to villify most of America.

Let’s start with the fiscal and social values of the population. According to multiple Rasmussen polls spanning multiple years, the population is overwhelmingly more conservative and overwhelmingly more moderate on fiscal issues than liberal, despite the outright liberal position held by the Democrat Congressmen. These same Rasmussen polls show a three-way split in the 30s on social issues, with the Conservative position being the position of plurality. Again, despite the Democrat politicians’ nearly lock-step Liberalism regarding social issues.

Twenty-nine percent (29%) of Likely U.S. Voters remain conservative on both fiscal and social issues, according to a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

Just 10% say they are fiscal and social liberals. Sixty-one percent (61%) are some other combination. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

These findings are consistent with surveys back to November 2007, as is the continuing pattern that voters tend to be more fiscally conservative than socially conservative.

Forty-four percent (44%) describe themselves as conservative on fiscal issues such as taxes, government spending and business regulation. Forty percent (40%) say they’re moderate when it comes to fiscal issues, while only 11% claim to be fiscal liberals.

But just 35% say they’re conservative when it comes to issues like abortion, public prayer and church-state topics. Thirty percent (30%) are moderate in this area, and 31% are social liberals.

It is very clear that, over a span of several years, the US population is far more Conservative than the leaders of the Democrat Party. This is why the Democrats don’t want people to know they’re not alone and that the population does not actually support the Democrat position on much of anything. Let’s just repeat that information the Democrats don’t want you to know. 44 percent of the US population is fiscally conservative, 40 percent of the US population is fiscally moderate, while a miniscule 11 percent is fiscally liberal. And that extreme minority fiscally liberal position is precisely where the Democrat elites live. The Republican elites aren’t much better, living in the fiscally moderate position, leaving the plurality of the people essentially without representation. This is why the likes of Karl Rove and Charles Krauthammer and the so-called “conservatives” in publications like the New York Times need to derisively dismiss actual Conservatives. They can’t let the word get out, either.

On to the next issue: Illegal immigration. And do get the facts straight, it’s not about immigration; it’s about illegal immigration. 65 percent of We the People want border control dealt with first and foremost while 59 percent of the population believes the US Government’s policy favors illegal immigration in direct contradiction with the wishes of We the People.

Hispanics And Voter ID

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/09/17

The Democrats and the mainstream media (one and the same) have pushed this meme that Voter ID is raaaaacist and Republicans and Conservatives are raaaaacist in pushing it. The Democrats and mainstream media push the idea that Voter ID is an attempt to prevent minorities from voting. So, let’s find out how minorities feel about it, shall we? In particular, the Hispanic minority. How do Hispanics feel about Voter ID? Well, they are in very strong support of Voter ID.

The Washington Examiner (HT Hot Air Headlines) reported on a poll conducted among Hispanic voters.

As part of a broad survey of Hispanic attitudes on a variety of political issues, the poll, conducted for the conservative group Resurgent Republic, asked a sample of 1,200 voters the following question: “As you may have heard, many states are considering laws that would require registered voters to present photo identification, such as a driver’s license, in order to cast their vote. Do you support or oppose those laws?”

In Florida, 88 percent of those surveyed said they support the laws, while just ten percent oppose them. In Colorado 71 percent support the law, while 26 percent oppose, and in New Mexico, 73 percent support the law, while 25 percent oppose. In general, Hispanic voters in Colorado and New Mexico are more liberal than those in Florida. But strong majorities in all three states favor photo ID laws.

The overwhelming support for photo ID contrasts sharply with the intense opposition to such laws in the Justice Department, the Democratic party, and the civil rights establishment. In June, Democratic National Committee chairman Debbie Wasserman Schultz called voter ID laws the work of Republicans “who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic.”

Debbie Wasserman Schultz will get nowhere among the independent voters with that “Jim Crow” garbage, and even less traction among the people who know who set up the Jim Crow Laws, but that is not her intent. Her intent is to continue the Liberal Lie.

As Mackubin T Owens wrote for the Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs at Ashland University in 2002 (prominently linked in my sidebar):

The Democratic Party’s war against African-Americans continued after the Civil War (which many Democrats in fact opposed, often working actively to undercut the Union war effort). Democrats, both north and south fought the attempt to implement the equality for African-Americans gained at such a high cost. This opposition was often violent. Indeed, the Ku Klux Klan operated as the de facto terrorist arm of the national Democratic Party during Reconstruction.

Democrats defeated Reconstruction in the end and on its ruins created Jim Crow. Democratic liberalism did not extend to issue of race. Woodrow Wilson was the quintessential “liberal racist,” a species of Democrat that later included the likes of William Fulbright of Arkansas, Sam Ervin of North Carolina, and Albert Gore, father of Al, of Tennessee.

So no, it is not Republicans who created and maintained Jim Crow laws, but rather Democrats who did so. That is historical record that no Democrat wants the general public to know about. But moron Debbie Whatsername Schmuck’s rant. “and literally — and very transparently — block access to the polls to voters who are more likely to vote Democratic.” What is Voter ID designed to do? Block felons who don’t have voting rights, illegal aliens, people who used ACORN voter registration fraud tactics to register multiple times under multiple names and multiple addresses, dead people, pets, under-age people from fraudulently casting their illegal votes. So yes, that is a class of people who vote almost exclusively Democrat.

But Voter ID has nothing to do with “race” or ethnicity, and even the overwhelming majority of Hispanic voters know that. Voter ID has everything with the purity and authenticity and legitimacy of the vote. Actually, I want slimeballs like Debbie to continue spreading the Leftist lies among the Hispanic community because the Hispanic community as a whole knows the truth. And the Leftist lies will shove more Hispanic voters into voting Republican, where their moral positions naturally place them anyway.

Liberal Voter ID Philosophy Attached Elsewhere

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2011/06/20

Patron: I want to buy this AR-15.
Gun Shop Owner: Are you at least 18?
Patron: Yup, wanna see my ID?
Gun Shop Owner: No need. I trust you.
Patron: Alright. I also want to buy this .38 Special.
Gun Shop Owner: Are you at least 21?
Patron: Yup, sure am.
Gun Shop Owner: Have a nice day.

Patron: I want a case of Budweiser.
Cashier: Are you at least 21?
Patron: Yup.
Cashier: Have a nice day.

Officer: Do you have a Driver’s License, proper registration and car insurance?
Driver: Yes, I do.
Officer: Very well. Have a safe trip.

It’s not very important to check any of that stuff. After all, it’s illegal to buy rifles under 18 or pistols under 21. It’s illegal to buy beer under 21. It’s illegal to drive an unregistered car without a license and insurance. So people won’t do it. And we can trust them to be honest.

And besides that, it might be raaaaacist to demand proof of any of that. Because, somehow blacks cannot be expected to live up to the same high standards of whites.

And that is the Liberal Voter ID Philosophy tied to other issues. Do read the Liberal rants on Voter ID Laws and pay special attention to Perry’s rants.
